Alternative Dispute Resolution

Pursuing or defending a civil case through court is more involved than you may realize.  Civil law is a broad term, encompassing many types of cases.  Examples of civil actions include:

  • Divorce and Family Law Cases
  • Personal Injury & Liability Claims
  • Contract Disputes
  • Consumer Legal Issues
  • Business & Employment-related Cases

When you hear that one person (or another entity) is suing another party, then it is a civil action. If you have a civil case, an important consideration is how to navigate towards a resolution. Massachusetts state or federal courts are options, but not the only choices.  Alternative forms of dispute resolution may serve your needs better, including mediation and arbitration.  The total cost of litigation is high, including legal fees, expert fees, stress, your time, and other factors.  Litigation moves slowly, and you may want to seek out a faster resolution.

At Next Phase Legal LLC, we suggest you consider all of your options, including:

  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Blend of Mediation/Arbitration
  • Collaborative Law Process
  • Conciliation
